Oh I see the photo now! Those bugles are twisted; that is why they look so speckled here. I like the looks of this just as it is, but when I wrap it around my wrist it looks too plain. Or maybe the liver spots on my arm need more competition!
Somewhere I saw such a bracelet with pearls sewed on to the center. Since I need things with flowers on them for the Point Arena show, I started making small flowers by my method using the brick stitch. Only got three done last night. But I am excited about finishing this since I did lay those green stone leaves that Bambi had gotten for me in Moab last autumn on the gold and felt they looked just perfect.
